Cuireadh Tionscnamh Lugh ar bun in 1993 leis an cheol tradisiúnta a chur chun cinn sa Ghaeltacht.
Tionscnamh Lugh was formed in 1993 to promote traditional and indigenous Irish music in the Donegal Gaeltacht.
Bíonn clár iomlán ceoil a reachtáil ag Tionscnamh Lugh idir Trad Tráthnóna agus ceolchoirmeacha agus tá muid fíor-bhuíoch daoibhse uilig a tháinig chuig na h-imeachtaí go dtí seo.
Tionscnamh Lugh organise a continous concert programme each year as well as the summer series of sessions known as Trad Tráthnóna. In the past Tionscnamh Lugh have played host to such artists as Paul Brady, Sharon Shannon, Altan, Cooney & Begley, DeDannan…
The majority of Tionscnamh Lugh events are held in Ionad Cois Locha, Dún Lúiche, a venue which greatly appeals to musicans and audiences alike. Martin O Connor described the setting as “too picturesque” . The venue holds 200 people which is quite limiting, but it has the advantages of being acoustically perfect and intimate.
“The downside of this spectacular success (Tionscnamh Lugh’s new year concerts 1996) was the queues of hopeful people shivering in Arctic conditions outside the center before the gigs, including some continental tourists who had hitched from the other side of the country. There were virtually no returns.” (The Irish Times) .
Tionscnamh Lugh are grateful to An Chomhairle Ealaíon for their continous support.
